Haha...Kyle is on a booster cusion. We actually thought about buying another cheap booster at Walmart and cutting a V-notch in the front for the rear stick to clear. Al banks more for him to see things on the ground.

This was fun. We're going to order our own GoPro...addicted now. ☺️

There are other options than the GoPro.

Take a look at the Garmin and ReplayXD cameras before buying.

Thank you! We typically listen to Enya or Yanni while flying - very relaxing!

We use an iPad mini for ForeFlight with an XGPS mounted back on the turtleneck inside the canopy. Easily viewable in all lighting conditions so far...love it.

That was the first time we stuck it up on the panel...normally we put out iPhone up there and throw the iPad on a kneeboard. I like both options.

My choice to GoPro is that there are so lots of equipment, movies, guides and help out there. Example MicBergsma very fine light explanatory YouTube movies. Flying Professors tips for recording with GoPro in aircraft. Many people out there who have great movies, more example Ney Grant ............ - Flying over Mountains, Valleys, Coastline and Deserts
